A "Draper's Assistant" His '-Yard
It is at Eylau that Marat appears in
his most terrible aspect. This battle
fought in midwinter, in 1807J was the
most important and bloody one that had
then occurred. France and Russia-had
never before opposed such strength to
each other, and a complete victory on
either side would have settled the f ate of
Europe. Bonaparte remn.incd in posses
sion of the field aud that was all; no
victory was ever so like a defeat.
The field ot Eylau was covered w.ith
snow, and tho little pools that scattered
over it were frozen sufficiently hard to
bear the artillery. Seventy-cue thousand
ineu on one side, ind eighty-five thousand
on the other, arose from the frozen field
on which they bad slept on the night of
February, without tout or covering, to
battle for a continent. Augercau, on the
left, was utterly routed in the morning.
Advancing through a storm so thick be
could not see the enemy, the Russian
cunnon mowed down his ranks with their
destructive fire, while the Cossack caval
ry, which were ordered to charge, came
thundering, almost hitting the French
infantry with their long lances before
they were visible tbtough the storm.
Hemmed iu and overthrown, the whole
division, composed of 16,000 mco, with
the exception of 1,500, were captured or
slain. Just then the suow storm clear
ing up, revealed to Napeleon the peril to
which he was brought, and he immedi
ately ordered a grand charge by the Im
perial Guard aud tbe- whole cavalry.
Nothing was further from Napoleon's
wishes or expectations than the bringing
of bis reserve into the engagement at
this early stage of the battle, but there
was no other resource left him.
Murat sustained bis high reputation
on this occasion, and proved himself, for
the hundred:h time, worthy the great
confidence which Napoleon placed iu
him. Nothing could be more imposing
than the battle-field at this moment.
Bonaparte and the Empire trembled in
the balance, while Murat to lead down
his cavalry to save '.hem. Seventy
squadrons, making in all about 11,000
well mounted men, began to move over
the slope, with the Old Gtfjrd marcyig
Bonaparte, it is said, was more agi
tated at this crisis than when, a few
moments before, he was so near beaten
by the Russians. But as he saw those
seventy squadrons, come down ou a
plunging trot, pressing bard after the
white plume of Murat, that streamed iu
the snow storm lar in front, a smile
passed over bis countenance.
The earth groaned and tremb'ed as
they passed, and the sab.es above the
dark, angry mass below looked like the
foam of a sea wave as it crests on the
deep. The rattling of their armor and
the muffled thuuder of the'r tret 1
drowned all the roar of the battle, as
with swift, set array, and swift, sio-a de
motion they bore down with terrible
front on the foe.
The shock of that host was like 'a
falliog mountain, and the front line of
the Russian army went 'down like frost
before it. Then commenced a protracted
light of hand to hand and sword to
sword, as in tbe cavalry action at Eck
inuhl. The clashing steel was like the
ringing of countless hammers, and
horses and riders were bleuded in wild
confusion together. The Russian reserve
were ordered up, tsnd on these Murat fell
with his fierce horse inert, crashing and
trampling them down by thousands. But
the obstinate Russians jdisdained to fly,
and rallied again and r.gain, so that it
was no longer cavalry charging on in fun
try, but squadrons of horse charging on
broken hosts that, gathering in knots,
still disputed, with unparalleled brave
ry, the red aud rent field.
It was during this strange fight that
Murat was seen to perform one of those
desperate deeds for which be wag so re
nowned. Excited to the highest pitch
of passion by the obstacles that sur
rounded him, singly and alone hecherged
into the centre of otio of the largest
bodies of the enemy, crushing and de
stroying them by tbe score; and yet amid
tho fulling of saber strokes like lightning
about him, that lofty white plume never j
once went down, wbilo ever and anon it
was seen, glaring througbhe smoke of;
battle, the star of hope to Napoleon, and
showing that his right arm was still up
lifted and striking for victory.
He raged like an uulooscd lion amid
the foe ; and his eyes, always terrible in
battle, burned with increasing lustre,
while his clear and steady voice, heard
above the turmoil of strife, was worth
more than a thousand trumpets to cheer
ou bis followers. At length, seeing a
knot of Russian soldiers that for a long
time had kept up a devouring firo on bis
men, ho wheeled his horse and drovo in
full gallop upon their leveled muskets.
A few of the guards who never allowed
that white plume to leave their eight,
charged after him. Without waitiug to
count his foes, be seized the bridle in his
teeth, and with his pistol in one hand
and his drawn sword ia the other, burst
in headlong fury upon them, and scat
thcrn as if a hurricane had swept by.
Murat was a thunderbolt on that day,
and the deeds that were wrought by him
will furnish themes for the poet and
painter J. T. JItadfy.
A Cincinnati Judge went swimming

After Them. Of course this has no
application to any community on this
We are sorry to see, on the part of m
few, a disposition to frown down upon
those who settle in our midst. This is
not done directly, "but indirectly. Many
lack in the social clement toward stran
gers, pay no attention to thein, and rath
er seem to avoid their acquaintance...
This is all wrong. We expect, and the
public expects all those and especially
our public men, who anticipate the rev
spect of tbe enlighted portion of the
comuiuuity, that they should be governed '
by something else than the narrow preju
dice which looks with suspicion, or give
the go-by to every man and woman,,
unless tbey have been in the country ten,
fifteen or twenty years. There are fewp -uot
a thousand miles from here, who
arrogate to themselves any amount of
wisdom, who think they are eutitlcd to.
